OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Golden State coach Mark Jackson was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Thursday for making public comments in an attempt to influence the officiating in the Warriors' playoff series with Denver.

After Golden State's 107-100 loss at Denver on Tuesday night, Jackson repeatedly mentioned Kenneth Faried's foul in the first half, when the Denver forward stuck out his right leg and moved his body while Warriors star Stephen Curry ran through traffic.

"They tried to send hit men at Steph," Jackson said. "There were some dirty plays early."

Golden State took a 3-2 series lead into Game 6 on Thursday night.
